A recently acquired Yashica Pentamatic for our collection. This one came to us from a fellow collector here in the southeast US.
This one includes the Auto Yashinon 5.5c f/1.8 lens that puts the lens as a very late production model (maybe mid 1961). Here’s a chance to check out our Pentamatic from many angles.
Our love affair with this fine camera continues. We just can’t get over the clean lines and excellent design.
If you want to acquire a nice Pentamatic for your own collection, they come up occasionally on US online auction sites and infrequently on auction sites in Japan. Nice examples can be had for under $50. Super nice examples will go closer to $100 with some guarantee of functionality from the seller.
